Cheese Bites

This post was going to be titled, 'Kids in the kitchen making Krispy Krinkles for Christmas, but it sounded silly.
Small children love making things,stirring, squashing and whisking things together, it's good for them. Some say that using your hands to do things like gardening, making sandcastles, cooking, is good for your very soul. So what nicer way to spend a winter afternoon than making something with small children.
These cheesy bites or Christmas krinkles or whatever name your children want to give them are perfect. You only have to help them by melting the butter and putting the tray of bites into the oven. Then make them to wait until they get cold and they can offer them round, much nicer than opening a packet of crisps, the house is filled with an inviting aroma, the children feel special, so put on some happy music and mix and stir together.

Cheese Bites

115g grated cheese
115g flour
115g melted butter
60g Rice Krispies.

Stir the ingredients together with a wooden spoon in a large bowl. Squash the mixture together and using a teaspoon place on greaseproof paper. Bake in the oven at 160 for about 15 minutes. If you would like to make them more grown-up then you can sprinkle them with paprika and serve with Worcester sauce.

Ready for the oven
